Good Morning! Disney Commissary Breakfast Menu circa 1940


Following up on my earlier post with the lunch menu from the Disney Burbank commissary (or "Studio Restaurant" as it's called here), I discovered the place was swanky enough to have not one but at least two specially-made menus for mealtimes. Here's what you would have seen if you'd arrived like Donald at about 8:34 am in about(my guess)1940:

Makes one hungry, doesn't it?

(for the record, it measures approximately 9x5.5" when closed)

Hmmm. Haven't seen a calf's liver on a breakfast menu since I was kid...and how much is in a rasher, anyway? Is that like a bushel or a peck? - imagine that on an IHOP menu today. Bond, James Bond, could eat there - I seem to remember shirred eggs, Bercy, was his morning prandial choice.

I love that tired Donald drawing on the cover. I bet some Donald Duck orange juice would perk him up. :)

It seems that now you only need a Counter Service menu, right? Like the one that can be seen in the lunch counter picture I had up a few weeks ago. They do turn up once in a while...
